CHELSEA v Norwich: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 21 November Kick-off: 15:00 GMT This is the first game for a while we can go into without having faced disappointment the previous week. Of course, that’s because we didn’t play last week but we’ll take our silver linings where we can this season. Whilst this time last season we [...]

Stoke v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Britannia Stadium Date: Saturday, 7 November Kick-off: 17:30 GMT Wednesday’s game in the Champions League isn’t the only time we’ve managed a win this season and it wasn’t against the best opposition either but it seemed significant all the same. Why? Because for the first time this season, in the first half and again [...]

Player petulance or board stupid?

In 2007, it was player power that saw the end of Jose Mourinho’s first spell in charge at Chelsea, fast forward 8 years and history looks to be repeating itself at Stamford Bridge. Just as it did in 2007 with Mourinho, in 2009 with Luiz Felipe Scolari and in 2012 with Andres Villas Boas, the [...]

CHELSEA v Liverpool: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: 31st October 2015 Kick-off: 12:45 GMT Jose Mourinho has now lost six of his last 12 Premier League games after losing just six of the previous 64, so little wonder the red side of Liverpool have all rushed out for their supplies of Kleenex in anticipation of today’s early kick-off really. [...]

West Ham v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Upton Park Date: Saturday 24 October Kick-off: 15:00 BST We might have a decent record in these games but I’m not sure how much that stands for this season. We’re about as together as Russell Brand and Katy Perry and whilst we’ve made our second worst start to a Premier League season, West Ham [...]

CHELSEA v Aston Villa: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 17 October Kick-off: 15:00 BST When we played Aston Villa around a similar time last season we were clear at the top of the Premier League – how things can change in 12 months or so. This afternoon’s game against a pretty poor Villa this season should really be a [...]

CHELSEA v Southampton: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 3 October Kick-off: 17:30 BST Here we go again, it’s Saturday, Chelsea are playing so it must be lottery time – or at least that’s how it feels because we just don’t know what to expect this season. To say we’ve had a rubbish start to this season is totally [...]

Newcastle v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: St James’ Park Date: Saturday, 26 September Kick-off: 17:30 BST After another solid performance midweek, this evening’s late game takes us to one of Jose Mourinho’s least favourite grounds with a trip to St James park. To say Newcastle are on a bit of a poor run is probably being generous although until recently [...]

CHELSEA v Arsenal: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 19 September Kick-off: 12:45 BST After a relatively comfortable 4-0 Champions League win midweek, it’s back to the bread and butter of the Premier League today – or should that be stale crusts and dripping given our recent performances? After woefully inadequate games against Palace and Everton, Jose Mourinho rang [...]

Mourinho Could Stop The Rot

Remember the famous Mourinho bus that used to park itself firmly in front of our goal? Well I’m not going to suggest the wheels have come off because it would actually be a bonus if that had happened, or at least if it happened in the right place on the pitch. No, as the weeks [...]
